Spinal surgeons carry out a wide variety of spinal surgery, from simple procedures to the complex removal of tumours. Many of the conditions dealt with are not life-threatening but can have a major impact on quality of life. It is estimated that one-third of the population is suffering with lower back pain at any point in time.A large number of patients are referred to the department who require simple spinal procedures. Simple spinal surgery involves decompressing nerves to reduce pain or improve function.Complex spinal surgery is the insertion of metalwork to stabilize and fuse parts of the spine.
